Colorectal Cancer Screening Test Use

This page shows colorectal cancer screening test use in U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico by race and ethnicity, insurance status, sex, and age group (50 to 64 years and 65 to 75 years). It also shows the percentage of the age-eligible population screened over time.

Colorectal cancer screening test use increased in most areas between 2012 and 2018. Screening generally occurred more frequently among those who had health insurance and among people who were 65 to 75 years old, who were likely insured by Medicare.
